Tim Stamps and Foam E-Z shape a US Blanks Orange Foam Blank

So the brass over at US Blanks threw the lads at Foam E-Z a new Orange Foam surfboard blank to shape out. The foam is 6% lighter or 1/2 pound compared to their Red Foam formula. We thought we would enlist Tim Stamps as the pro shaper since he is a stickler when it comes to his foam. We knew we could get an unbiased, honest opinion from Stamps whether it was good or bad. We were pleasantly surprised by their latest creation so look for the Orange Foam at Foam E-Z in 2011.
